I was reminded as to why I hate nail polish..... I haven't worn nail polish in 2 years. I got a manicure on Wednesday and it.started chipping the very next day

I have been using Shellac-Gell all this time. It definitely lasts longer. In comparison nail polish sucks

If you get the chance test out that gel stuff it really works, since you work with your hands alot

Most nail shops have it - it looks like regular nail polish but has the gel mixed in. It can also be called Gellish, Shellac or gel manicure.

I don't do nail polish either...I've gotten pedicures and they are fun.

I cant do acrylics but I love how nice they look... The Shellac lasts about 2 weeks to but I've noticed the lighter colors of it last up to a month. I had this clear pink on last time and it didnt chip or fade for over 3 weeks!
